Every now and then my wife, Emily, talks me into something. Stitch Fix Men is one of those things. First of all, I hate shopping. I was completely okay with that being one of the perks of getting married- Emily now buys all of my clothes... and, let's be honest, generally tells me when to wear what. It didn't take her long to overhaul my closet, nor me to notice some of my old favorites suddenly missing. I do like the idea of Stitch Fix, though. Every few weeks a new box shows up on the porch and I get to try on a limited number (5) of items (shirts, shorts, pants, outerwear) in the comfort of my own home. No digging for sizes, no trips to the fitting room, no long lines at the checkout. (And no obligation to buy.)
This is actually my third fix but my first time to share it here. I have kept something from all three of my "fixes" so far. Each month you can put notes for your stylist of what items you would like (date night, business casual, special events, etc) and they will try to send you things that match your request. My birthday is at the end of the month and we will be going on a day date of fishing at the lake + lunch and drinks at a local brewery. I asked my Stitch Fix stylist for "day date wear."
Here's what they sent:
Hawker Rye- Essential Stripe Vee Tee ($28): I didn't decide to keep this shirt. I own many v-neck tees and this one just wasn't that different or special enough to keep. It was a little loose through the middle and I wasn't crazy about the stripes.
Hawker Rye- Essential Wash Garment Dye Short ($44): When I first took these shorts out of the box I was afraid they might be too short for my liking, but they ended up just right. I am not a fan of pockets on shorts (RIP cargo shorts from the 2000's) and liked the slimmer fit on these. I'm pretty sure Emily could have got these cheaper (with all of her sales and coupons) but I didn't have a pair of navy yet, so I decided to keep them.
Hawker Rye- Apollo Garment Dyed Polo ($38): I didn't keep this polo. I wasn't a fan of the color and I just don't wear that many polo shirts. I don't like the buttons and prefer to stick to tees when I can.
Original Penguin- Bing Heritage Slim Henley ($49): While this was a t-shirt and not a polo, I still don't like buttons on my short sleeve shirts. Had this been a long sleeve henley I might have kept it because I did like the color and texture.
Alternative Apparel- Alturas Eco Jersey Zip Hoodie ($44): I really like this jacket. I like the gray color and that it is very lightweight. Perfect day date wear for Texas.
This fix totaled $203, or $152.25 with the buy 5 discount. (You get a 25% discount but only if you keep all five pieces.) All in all, I feel like the stylist delivered on day date wear like I requested but the style was just a little off for my taste. Emily says the more fixes you order the more that the stylist gets to know your style preferences. Next time I will mention that I don't like polos or buttons on my short sleeves.
